Shortly before sunrise, mountainous cliffs facing East will take on this mystic color. This is partly because short-wave violet and blue rays of sunlight are most likely to penetrate the Earth’s atmosphere, so that any objects in the distance will be seen through a screen of blue reflections. Since the rising sun shines forth in brilliant reds, the cliffs will display a glorious overlay of red-orange, blue and violet. "Twilight of the Gods" also refers to the dawn of a new era, a miracle that takes place every single day.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
